If catching the Apple Watch out in the real world isn’t enough, perhaps a sign that developers are being cued up to have their apps ready for a quick turn-around is.

According to a report published on January 30 by MacRumors and citing an unnamed source, some high-profile developers are being sought after by Apple. The reason for this is for the Watch, and applications being prepared for the wearable which is on schedule to begin shipping in April. The report indicates that this developer, and possibly others, is being tasked with having their Apple Watch-ready application available and ready to go by February 12.

The reasoning behind this early launch into the App Store is unknown, but speculation seems to focus on the possibility that Apple is wanting to test out this third-party app on Watches that are currently out there in the wild, being tested right now. Another possibility is that Apple is planning to show this app off at some point in the future.

It’s not all that surprising that Apple would want to get some apps up and running well in advance of the Watch’s launch, seeing as one of the strengths the Watch has is as another device to run apps on.

Are you looking forward to the Watch?
